EB15: ENVE’s Outrageously Light Full Carbon Road Hubs

first_imgCarbon rims are already pushing the boundaries of light weight, so how do you make your wheels lighter? In many cases, you could turn your focus to the hub. Utilizing carbon fiber is usually a good way to reduce weight, but building a hub out of it? Not so easy. Because of that, most manufacturers simply use a carbon hub shell with aluminum flanges which can handle the stress of the spokes. That still leaves a lot of weight on the table though which is why ENVE invested the time into a full carbon shell.Several years in the making, ENVE is finally ready to launch their insanely light hubs to the world which are sure to equally lighten your wallet…. In order to create a full carbon hub shell that would hold up to their torture testing in the grand tours and over 100k miles of total testing, the flange of the hubs needed special attention. Using a continuous fiber construction and molded rather than drilled spoke holes, the patented process has gotten the green light. Utilizing DT Swiss internals, the only difference in construction on the inside is bonded in drive rings rather than threaded. The DT Swiss parts allow for Shimano, Campy, and SRAM freehub bodies which are easily serviceable. Offered in hubsets in 20 F/24 R spoke counts, the hubs will also be available built into complete wheels with ENVE’s rims. The price of admission comes at an equally staggering $1350 for the hubs alone. At that price the wheels built with ENVE SES clinchers at $3500 or the ENVE tubies at $3300 seem like a bargain. Available soon.enve.comcenter_img The result of those Made-in-Utah carbon shells and DT Swiss internals is a staggering weight of 232 grams for the pair. That includes the Ceramic Speed bearings as well.last_img read more

Emma May takes on a bigger role for Gophers women’s hockey

first_imgMay isn’t all fun and games, though. She intends to major in sports marketing and business. She is already making big moves outside the locker room. She hasstarted her own nonprofit, It Stops Now, an organization dedicated to stopping cyberbullying.May also works as an intern with the Minnesota Wild. She is on the promotions team and helps handle game day operations.“I help set up games in between periods. One time I didn’t have anyone to do one game, and I had to call my dad up and say, ‘I know you’re at the game, you’re doing it,’” May said. “He was not too excited, but it’s a lot of fun. I get to interact with a lot of people and hear their stories.”May hopes to work in fan analytics for a hockey team post-graduation.“I love sports and would love to stay in it. Anything that has to do with computers and accessing fans, talking to people,” she said. “I’m a very outgoing person, so I love hanging out and talking to people.” She started goaltending during her U12 year after she discovered that she didn’t like playing defense and thought that she would only have to sit in the net as a goalie.Her brother Eli, who plays hockey for Augsburg, helped support her through her career, as well as her teammates over the years.“My brother pushed me to get better and try as hard as possible,” she said. “I think goalie just kind of ended up being what I wanted to do with my life, and how I want to spend my time on the ice.” Emma May takes on a bigger role for Gophers women’s hockeyMay made her first career starts last series and tallied 32 saves in two games. Tommy SlettenJanuary 26, 2017Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintOne of the most common mantras in the hockey world, “goalies are weird,” rings true in Minnesota.While Emma May is not the oddest, her extra of flair and quirk is why her teammates love and respect her.“We love her anyway,” defenseman Sophie Skarzynski joked. “To be a goalie you definitely have to be a little weird … Emma brings a consistent, positive effort and energy to practice every day.” May, a sophomore from Eagan, Minnesota, earned herself a starting role for the Gophers after two successful starts last weekend against Ohio State at home.She got her first win Friday and made 25 saves in a 1-1 tie with Ohio State Saturday. The Gophers lost in six rounds of a shootout 2-1. The games were only her second and third appearances in net for Minnesota.However, May is more than just what you see between the pipes.She has a larger-than-life personality and loves spending time with all of her teammates — even the “weird” ones.May said that she and her fellow goaltenders, Sidney Peters and Serena D’Angelo, all have different types of personalities.“I am more of the singing, dancing type, so I’m the one who gets shushed a lot in the locker room, or told to sit down,” May said. “I just like to run around the locker room and pump everyone up, do everything I can to get everyone ready and pumped for the game.”last_img read more
